Learn about IEP’s

You’ll learn the ins and outs of navigating the IEP process at your child’s school district. You’ll get 1:1 support from one of our trained parent mentors on how to review your IEP documents. This training is a great place to ask questions and work through any problems you are having with your child’s school district. (Mentor parents are not attorneys and IEP clinics do not provide legal advice.)
